(Victorville)–As the seasons are changing and the cool weather is just around the corner, the Victorville Police Station would like to remind the public to be mindful of safety.
As the weather turns cold, many people will need to let their vehicles warm up before starting their daily commutes. Please do not start your car and leave it running in your driveway while you continue to get ready. Also, do not leave your vehicle running when you go into the coffee shop or convenience store to purchase your morning coffee. By doing these things you’re creating crimes of opportunity.
Think safety when performing your daily activities and you’ll likely reduce the risk of becoming a victim of a crime. Don’t make children possible victims by leaving them in the car whether it’s cold or hot as that can be detrimental to their health and is a crime. As problematic as having your vehicle stolen can be, don’t chance that your child would be left inside the vehicle if someone decides to take it.
